Tim O'Reilly says he gets his best ideas by "watching the alpha geeks." In this keynote, Tim and Etech program chair Rael Dornfest introduce you to the thinking and themes behind this year's conference and some of the people and projects they're watching and working with. What these alpha geeks show us are the latest twists and turns of the hacker saga, the innovations that come when people who are comfortable with a particular technology "scratch their own itch." This was a...

Joe Trippi, the man whose ground-breaking use of Internet-based campaigning propelled Howard Dean from obscurity to early front-runner, takes Teach-In participants inside the campaign's unconventional experiment in Internet politics, and looks at both victories and lessons learned. The other candidates are rushing to emulate Trippi's Internet strategy--as Wired News declared, "Internet politics is dead. Long live Internet politics." This presentation was followed by a Q&A...

If we think of democracy as a social/political operating system, advocacy is a key source of "application development," where advocacy groups and processes may be seen as the applications. The Internet can also be seen as an operating system where innovative applications support interactivity and social network development. Currently we see an explosion of activity as the synergy of the two systems is increasingly obvious as campaigns focused on candidates and issues of the day...

[Full title: Gatekeepers No More? The Grassroots Challenges the Journalistic Priesthood] Professional journalists have been the chief gatekeepers of news about political campaigns and governmental operations. That's changing, fast, as the Internet and other technical tools open up a variety of avenues for other participants in the information process. Campaign blogs are only one such avenue. MoveOn.org's invitation to the public to come up with anti-Bush advertisements showed the way toward a...

Got threads? Online communities are among the most popular tools used on the net. However, these tools have had limited refinement over the last two decades and are now reaching their limit of utility, as volumes rise beyond the abilities of mere humans to keep up.

The conventional venture capital model - multiple funding rounds, multiple investors per round - evolved to address the operational risks of this sort of venture.
